The RSPCA are offering to provide free accommodation for the pets of those who have been left homeless by the floods.

The short-term boarding is available by calling the RSPCA’s 24-hour emergency line on 0300 1234 999.

We have secured places at kennels and catteries to look after pets of people who have moved into temporary accommodation and can’t take their animals with them. Hopefully this will prevent animals being kept in unsuitable conditions and will stop people from staying in damp homes with no power and water because they’ve got nowhere to take their pets."
